Airflow management and energy saving potentials at a high-density data center with stepped-like server placement

ESCO & Building Energy Retrofits

We proposed practical methods for mesurement and verification of energy savings under the circumstances of Chinese industry, based on GB/T 28750-2012 of China and foreign guidelines such as IPMVP and ASHRAE Guideline14. Abundant cases may act as references for energy management contract. First part of the book introduces our methods in format of guideline.The second part compiles all the pilot-study cases cencerning EMC.
